I'm a Lepidopterist/Illustrator/Conservationist here in San Francisco. I brought the idea of The Green Hairstreak Corridor to Nature in the City in 2008 - a project to restore a San Franciscan butterfly's vanishing ecosystem. I’ve walked seasonally surveying the Endangered Mission Blue butterfly in three counties around the Bay. I created “ Operation Checkerspot” for the Presidio Trust. I received the 2014 "Environmental Educator" Award from BAY NATURE Magazine.
